Based in Cologne, Eva Kahlhöfer is active in Egon Zehnder’s Financial Services Practice. She leverages deep experience gained in various management roles at HSBC to help clients master their challenges, and is valued for her ability to accurately and insightfully assess situations and propose appropriate solutions.

I’m passionate about supporting senior executives on their personal and professional journeys, helping them tap their full potential and deliver outstanding results – for their teams, for their companies, and for society as a whole.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Eva held various management and other roles at HSBC Germany, most recently as a Director of HSBC Service Company Germany GmbH responsible for Financial Crime Risk Operations and as a Co-Chair of the German chapter of HSBC’s gender equality network.

Eva earned a BSc and MSc in physics (with distinction) from the University of Münster in Germany. During her time off work, she loves spending time with family and friends, sings in a choir, and is passionate about cooking, traveling, going to the opera, and watching soccer.
